ADO Den Haag 0-3 FC Utrecht

FC Utrecht cruised to an opening-night victory in the Eredivisie as they won 3-0 at ADO Den Haag.
Two debutants accounted for both goals from the visitors, who are looking to build on last season's fourth-placed finish.
Cyriel Dessers got the first after only 15 minutes, with the former NAC Breda forward tapping in the rebound after Gyrano Kerk's effort came back off the post.
Fellow new boy Sander van der Streek doubled the lead nine minutes into the second half, heading in a cross from Urby Emanuelson - an 18th-minute replacement for the injured Yassine Ayoub, who had to be helped from the pitch by his team-mates.
And with six minutes left Dessers again showed why Utrecht had plucked him from NAC as he bagged a second of the night, firing home after being afforded too much space by the ADO defence.
